Susan Smyth is a powerhouse!

She’s just helped one of my school mum friends [Natasha B.] nab a dream job (and she was shortlisted for two others) based on Susan’s resume expertise and cover letter prowess!

Susan was a pleasure to work with. She is highly professional and exceeded my expectations with the work she delivered. She took the time to listen to the problems I was experiencing with a project, in a very short time she delivered excellent copy. I highly recommend working with her.

I was fortunate to find Susan through a friend’s network. I found Susan to be very friendly and insightful with re-writing my resume and cover letter. Susan’s writing style was very complementary to my professional history as she took the time to understand my skills and achievements that would best suit the positions I will be applying for.

My new resume and cover letter are such a vast improvement, and that is why if anyone is seeking assistance with their resume or cover letter, I would not hesitate in recommending Susan.

I engaged Susan to do some sub-contracting work for me in the form of research for long-form blog articles. Being one of my first sub-contracting experiences I was a little nervous, but as it turns out I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Susan turned around some great research for me with lightning fast speed. She made my life so much easier with lots of looming deadlines and I won’t hesitate to use Susan again for research, proofreading and copywriting.

I engaged Susan to proofread and edit a number of articles for me. She was quick to action them and picked up even the smallest of errors. She also performed her own research to ensure that places named in the articles were referred to by their proper names, and ensured that all spelling of these were correct.

Knowing her expert eyes were looking at my copy meant I was confident my work was error-free, and enabled me to plough through lots of work and still meet my deadlines. Susan was friendly and easy to work with, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a proofreader or editor.

I recently asked Susan to proofread some website copy I’d looked at too many times to confidently proofread myself. And thank goodness – because she caught a few things that I’d overlooked – NOT a good look for a copywriter! Susan worked quickly but thoroughly on a super-fast turnaround and I was super-grateful knowing I could send my client her copy without fear of typos.

Thanks so much Susan!
